ACEM and Karabena Consulting have partnered to document a methodology for developing picture-based communication tools for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in emergency department settings.
We hope it will serve as a guide for emergency departments across Australia to develop pictorial techniques to increase culturally safe communication with First Nations Peoples, thus enhancing their patient journey.
We sincerely thank the community members, service providers, clinicians and allied health staff who contributed to this project.

ACEM wishes to acknowledge that funding for this activity has been provided by the Commonwealth as part of the Australian Government Department of Health Specialist Training Program.
